Common Red Soldier Beetles

Observation - Common Red Soldier Beetles. Description: These red soldier beetles were on some ragwort which was also covered in Cinnabar caterpillars (I have posted the caterpillars separately with better photos). Would be interested to know if there is any kind of relationship between the two bugs(?)
